: MOZART and DEBUSSY

Antonio Brosa (violin) Kathleen Long (piano)
Of the six sonatas for various instruments that Debussy planned to- write towards the end of his life, he was able to complete only three. The first (for cello and piano) and the second (for flute, violin, and harp) were written in 1915; the third (for violin and piano) was completed two years later. It was his last work. Illness overcame him, and a fourth sonata (for oboe, horn, and harpsichord) was never written. Debussy himself said that the mood of the Violin Sonata was in striking contrast with his own at the time it was composed, being ' full of life, almost joyous.' The work is in three movements: Allegro vivo, Intermide (Fantasque et leger), and Finale (Tres anime). Harold Rutland

: LET JUSTICE BE DONE

A series of programmes to illustrate cases of many kinds in the story of the administration of justice in British courts
6-The Pimtico Mystery
Narrator, James McKechnie
Script and production by John Gough
The last programme of this series deals with a cause of death so strange as possibly to be unique. Edwin Bartlett was a successful grocer, a good deal older than his wife Adelaide, who was of English-French origin. At the time of Bartlett's death they were living in Pimlico, and apparently their marital affairs were quite happy.
The dead man's father insisted on a postmortem, and chloroform was found in the stomach. There was no doubt whatever what he died of. But how did it get there? Liquid chloroform is a fiery substance: the slightest touch will burn the mouth. Was it accident, suicide, or murder?
The trial of Adelaide Bartlett was the cause cilebre of 1886.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
